Verastarr---Magnepan Upgrade


happen to come across this and was curious if anybody has tried this with their Magnepans ?

No, but I can say that replacing the standard jumper bars by a good quality jumper cable (I use short lengths of Nordost Valkyrja) and the standard fuses with something better (I use Synergistic Research Black fuses) can make a huge difference.

So if you have Magnepans or are thinking of buying a pair, these upgrades are a no brainer, being easy to install and relatively affordable. I assume that  the products your mention will work just fine, but there are plenty of others options to consider.

I purchased the Verastarr upgrade ( silver polished rods and jumper cables) for my 3.7’s about a year ago and definitely heard an improvement. Just remember that without the fuses if you are not careful you could damage your speakers. I’m very careful to make sure my amp is turned off before removing my speaker cables.

gotcha on turning the amp off when removing speaker cables.     

do you see any issue with leaving a solid state amp on all the time ?     
I leave my SS amp (Plinius SA Reference) on 24/7 (unless I'm on vacation) and have had no issues.
Time to revive an old thread....

I just installed this Verastarr Maggie Upgrade on my 1.7i....
At first listen, I thought "bright".... then I continued. I soon realized that what I heard was not brightness but upper frequencies that I previously hadn't heard with the Maggies. Then a voice appeared dead center , as usual, but this time more center... if that's possible. And, solid , defined... I had to open my eyes to see if Amber was actually sitting between my speakers... spooky. So then I listened to 2 Cellos... one of my favorites...  I could hear the movement of the strings, a new sense of air around each instrument... this is awesome.
If you have Maggies and haven't upgraded the fuse and jumper.... do it... now.
Thank me later..
